on a 1981 280zc turbo,does the fuel pumpm relay affect tne gas guage

Asked by Mar 23, 2012 at 02:08 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


To the best of my knowledge, no it does not. The fuel pump relay only controls the power circuit for the pump itself, not for the fuel level sending unit, which should have its own 'ignition on' power source, if I recall correctly.
